Four O'Clocks Seeds - Fuchsia


Mirabilis jalapa

Four O'Clocks are special because the blooms don't open until late afternoon and remain open and lovely all night! Plant them on your patio or anywhere else you will be able to enjoy their sweet-smelling, beautiful blooms all evening. As they grow, Four O'Clock plants form a tuber (like dahlias from seed do) that you can dig up in the fall and replant next spring. 2' height. Full sun. Tender perennial.
